The reason that I chose the Sony Ericsson K530i was the affordability in terms of pricing compared to the features that it has. It is a very affordable 3G cell phone and I have already use it for video calls to my parent in laws who are residing in an another country.
Apart from the 3G capabilities, the 2MP camera is awesome for outdoor shots although it is not that good for low lighting shots. The video camera is not bad as well. The look and feel is awesome with slim black body but myonly complaint is the battery cover that is not as fit as I would have expected from a company such as Sony Ericsson.
The battery life is average that can last me for two days with normal usage. Another great feature that this phone has is the external storage where you can slot in the Memory Stick Micro (MM2) card that can store up to 1GB of data.
The phone also comes with a built in FM radio and when you are bored waiting for someone, just tune in to your favorite radio station and you would have a rocking day!
All in all, I am very satisfied with the phone and feels that the price is a very good value for money if you looking for an entry level 3G cell phone.
